Crystal Plus Pod Kit Overview
The Crystal Plus is a prefilled pod kit developed by SKE, which also make the popular Crystal Bar. This kit offers the same intense flavour as disposables, but with much better value for money. Each pack of pods offer around 1200 puffs, essentially halving the cost of disposable vaping. Also, since the battery is rechargeable, it greatly reduces the environmental impact.
The battery has the same stylish design of the original Crystal Bar, featuring a metallic pattern in a clear plastic outer shell. The 400mAh capacity should last the life of one pod, which are easily fitted into the battery and provide roughly 600 puffs before needing a replacement. If the battery does need to be charged before the pod is finished, simply charge with the USB-C quick charge cable.
The Crystal Plus pods contain 2% nic salt, which makes it an ideal disposable alternative. It’s also a great starting point for new vapers, due to its ease of use.
How To Set Up & Use The Crystal Plus Pod Kit?
1. Insert the USB-C cable and fully charge the battery before use.
2. Remove the prefilled pod from the packaging and pull out the rubber bung from the top. This breaks the freshness seal and allows the liquid to prime the coil.
3. Insert the pod into the top of the battery. You should feel the magnets grab and pull it firmly into place.
4. Allow 5–10 minutes to let the liquid properly soak into the cotton. This is important as it helps prevent it from burning.
5. Now you can vape! The auto-draw makes vaping this kit easy as there are no buttons to press or settings to adjust.
6. When the pod is empty, it’s time to replace it with a new one. Simply repeat the previous steps and you’re good to go.
Moving From Disposable Vapes To Crystal Plus
If you use disposable vapes at the moment, then you might wonder what it would be like moving to the Crystal Plus kit. Well the good news is, making the switch over is very simple. The Crystal Plus works in almost the same way as disposables, it even looks just like them too. The main difference when moving over is that you will not need to throw it away when the battery or liquid runs out.
Because this kit uses prefilled pods, all you have to do is replace the pod itself, not the battery. This actually makes it more convenient, because you could have 2-3 different flavours with you at any time. The pods pull out of the battery and don't cause any mess, so you could keep switching between flavours quickly without being stuck with one disposable all the time. You don't even need to compromise on flavour, as these pods have the same intense taste as single use e-cigs, making the Crystal Plus an ideal choice in this situation.
When you make the move from disposable vapes to the Crystal Plus, you will not only half the cost, you will also be helping the environment. This is because you only dispose of the pods, not the whole unit. Many people have made similar changes and found it just as easy to vape as disposables.
